I doubt you guys over there will get this message but hopefully somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who knows Japanese and somebody who works at CAPCOM, will speak to somebody who will speak to somebody who speaks Japanese will speak to somebody who works at CAPCOM about this.

In Gyakuten Saiban 5/Ace Attorney, please, for the love of god, don't make them 3D. Even if it is for 3DS (possibly not but most likely), the cartoony, anime-like animation was part of the games' charm. In Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney, Phoenix is in 3D as we have seen in the trailers. It looks very good, don't get me wrong! Although, from what I understand, even though I'm sure that game will be great and quirky much like the Ace Attorney games, it'll be dark much like parts of the Professor Layton games.
I, like many others, enjoy the occasional darkness. Apollo Justice was dark at times, especially in the last case, and that was great! A lot of people didn't like it, probably because it was quite different from the Phoenix Wright trilogy but I felt it worked because it kept some elements. The quirkiness, the style and the animation.
I like the 3D but I love and prefer the classic style of animation. In GS1, it was slightly choppy (compared to future games). In GS2, it was slightly improved and fit with the first game's animations. In GS3, a brilliant improvement which still fit with previous games'. GS4, perfected. Beautiful and dark while remaining cute and playful. GK1, can't improve on perfection, except for maybe the overworld sprites. I never played GK2 because we haven't got a localization or translation, but from what I've seen it looks pretty good.
In conclusion, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".Give your opinions, other court-records forumers! We want CAPCOM to hear all of us!
(I'm not sure if this is where I'm meant to post it but I wish to be heard!)
